    I sent these pictures today to AQS in hopes of getting juried into the regional show in Des Moines. This is an original design using my Y-not and "pivot on the rivet" techniques. All strip pieced. No little pieces cut out and no Y-seams. It was quilted by Michele Pettorini. Can you figure out how I did it? -Sage

    I call it "Authorized Personnel Only" because it reminds of the warning signs you see on doors warning about chemical inside.

    I would have to show you in pictures. Can't describe it. And I am kind of secretive about my techniques. But I will tell you to look for parallel lines.
